WASHINGTON - Statements from Georgetown University Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Lee Reed and Head Men's Basketball Coach John Thompson III following the discussion of possible conference realignment.

Lee Reed, Director of Intercollegiate Athletics "As a founding member of the BIG EAST in 1979, we have confronted challenging moments in the past and we are confident that as we work through the events of the past days we will maintain the high quality of the BIG EAST Conference.

"We are fully engaged with the leadership of the University and are confident that the BIG EAST Conference is being proactive during this period of change in college athletics.

"This is obviously a fluid situation with a great deal of speculation about the future of our league, but we will continue to discuss with our leadership what is in the best interest of Georgetown University.

"At Georgetown University, we strive to be best athletics program that we can be and that is never more true than today. I am confident that no matter how the college athletics landscape change, Georgetown will continue to be a factor."

John Thompson III, Men's Basketball Coach "It's been clear for two years, if not longer, that the landscape of intercollegiate athletics is fluid and is changing. The Big East is no different. In the future, be it the very near future or longer than that, we are going to undergo a transformation, a change.

"If you look at our history, the Big East has undergone changes in the past, be it subtractions or additions, and we've always emerged with quality teams that compete for and win championships."
